Happy Tuesday. Or as we like to call it in the asylum, Linda's day out. You all know I own a car that I don't get to drive but one day a week because the other adults in my household have paying jobs and I just go out to spend the money. See the problem?
On some occasions, emergencies, or when no one is looking, or when they are all busy eating breakfast, I make a quick escape and venture out into the world on an unscheduled day. Oh good grief. Okay so I am a sneaky ole bitch and go for it.
Today I was to have the car, but someone else's schedule changed and it's not my day now. Okay, I can accept that and kick the dog later. But hark, what's that???? and emergency you say??? GereaKaye forgot to tell us she needed something for school and it had to be gotten today before school started?????? What????, everyone else is busy, and has showered and are dressed and still they can't take her???? WTH (it woulda been WTF but I am trying to clean up my act, yeah for my old potty mouthed self).
So stinky Oma, gets dressed sorta, and hauls GK to the drugstore not far from her school to buy that "Oh but if I don't have it by today I'll get a bad grade......meh, meh, meh, (bottom lip out, crocodile tears in her little buggy eyes)". I get out of the car, start up the handicap ramp because it is easier on my nasty old knee and.......................
I hope you have seen the movie "Up". If not, synopsis, old man Mr. Frederickson, young boy Russell, who is a member of the Wilderness scouts needs to earn his assisting the elderly badge, so he knocks on the old man's door and asks if he can help him across the street etc. Very funny movie, more for adults than kids.
GereaKaye comes around the car and says, "Hey Oma, if I was in the Wilderness Scouts, I'd be earning my assisting the elderly badge now." and I just lost it. I am older yes, but elderly not yet....not far away, but not yet. ILMAO. I guess she couldn't tell if I was laughing laughing or having an attack or what ever but that kid was so startled and it make it even funnier. Poor GK.
After we had gotten back in the car after getting the grade notebook binder thingie. She says in a very official tone. "You know, if people would stick to the schedule, you wouldn't have to be doing this for me huh Oma?"....and I thought to myself. Have you seen the movie Clueless??????????? and laughed all the way to school.
Okay so does this mean that my family sees me as the great "elderly" maliable one, the old crone rescuer, or just some idiot old broad that they can pull one over on? Whatever they are thinking, it's a good thing I have a sense of humor. Other wise, have you seen the movie, Oma ate the family?
